Transmetal 2 Megatron vs Tigerhawk commercial


Boy, this sure is a 20 year old commercial. Still, not too bad considering the state of CGI at the time. Both toys are certainly favorites from the time for me. Both have third modes that aren't very well covered by many. Tigerhawks is a kinda-sorta tank mode that a basic Beast Wars figure could drive. Both have the cockpits from the abandoned Spark figure concept which at the time I initially rejected as Transformers are sentient beings and pilots were for other robot toy lines, but now would have liked to have seen more of. Honestly that was a non-sensical reaction as it was still the Transformer itself and not just some guy who found the robot in a garage somewhere (I was young, you don't always think the best when you're younger). There's a nice thought to the visual of a Transformer's essence forming a physical presence and acting as a pilot or ejecting for adventure in harder to reach areas.

It's kinda like Beast Wars Blaster Master in that manner of speaking and that's really appealing to me.

Tell me that tiny pilot wouldn't have been awesome.
